AN INDEPENDENT SCHOOL FOR BOYS GRADES 7-12

About The Robsham Center for the Arts

The E. Paul Robsham Jr. Memorial Center for the Arts included the following impressive resources:

  • Studios for drawing, painting and printmaking, photography, woodworking, and ceramics. 
  • Two galleries: Landau, a professional gallery that showcases working artists, and an ever-changing student gallery of work from the studio classes. Monthly receptions held in the Landau Gallery are open to the public. 
  • Kraft Theater, for performing art productions.
  • The Locatelli Studio, home to most drawing and painting classes as well as the Form VI portfolio group and Form I art classes.
  • Photo labs that feature black and white darkrooms house enlargers for 35mm work as well as medium and large format negatives; a bank of Apple computers for digital capture, manipulation and printing.
  • A wood shop that is home to the Panel program and very popular woodworking classes. Dovetail boxes, custom design furniture, and much more come out of this studio, as well as relief carvings that every student must create in order to graduate. The Panel program has been in existence since 1927 and our graduates' panels are hung throughout our campus.
  • The Lee Family Studio, which houses the ceramics program and the general sculpture labs, as well. Students work primarily in stoneware and both functional and sculptural ceramics are fired in the on-site gas kiln. The space is large, flexible and well suited to projects of all sizes in clay, plaster or wood.
